427 - Espresso with Two Lumps, $150 (Linoleum Block Print, 6" x 4.5")I enjoy with linoleum blocks to make prints because the design needs to be simplified. This particular print was my first two block print design. It was fun and challenging to see how the design would work. Naturally, I used one of my favorite subjects: my espresso cup.
426 - Wind Blown Cedars, $150 (Linoleum Block Print, 6" x 5")Along the coast of the Pacific Northwest, there are wonderful large cedar trees.

28- Juggler II, $150 (Linoleum Block Print, 5" x 12")"The Juggler, II" was based on the same drawing that inspired the oil painting "The Juggler". For the linoleum block version, I played up the contrast of black and white shapes.
27 - Three Spires - Heidleberg, Germany, $150 (Linoleum Block Print, 4" x 6")When my husband and I lived in Heidelberg, we used to enjoy taking walks in the older parts of town. I enjoyed the shapes and rhythms of the spires from many of the buildings.
